Technology Commercialization

The Technology Commercialization Initiative's mission is to provide technology entrepreneurship education, resources, and research to those at the Marshall School of Business and the USC community at large. In a dynamic era characterized by the frequent introduction of new technologies – innovations and inventions in artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual reality, augmented reality, and more – TCI is dedicated to enhancing the knowledge and skills of those seeking to take their idea to market, whether through a new venture of their own, through licensing, or through other business models.

TCI provides a structured undergraduate Minor in Technology Commercialization and a four-course Graduate Certificate in Technology Commercialization for those already enrolled in a USC graduate program or for those interested in applying from outside USC. We supplement this curriculum with access to our other Greif Center or USC entrepreneurship programs, including the Marshall/Greif Incubator, the Blackstone LaunchPad, the Stevens Center for Innovation, and the Health, Technology, and Engineering @ USC Program.

TCI personnel are also actively engaged in research and publication. Current work includes participation in the Mobile Innovation Group, a multi-institution consortium that includes researchers from Stanford, MIT, and INSEAD – exploring how mobile platforms propel work at the intersection of founders and innovation.
